It is encouraging that Alinta, with financial support from ARENA and the SA Government, is currently finalising a pre-feasibility study into concentrated solar thermal power at Port Augusta.
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are working to lower the cost of solar energy systems and improve efficiencies in a big way, thanks to a system of small particles.
New Energy Storage Technology (Nest) is testing its 1-megawatt concentrated solar power (CSP) system
New Energy Storage Technology (Nest) is testing its 1-megawatt concentrated solar power (CSP) system at the Masdar Institute’s Beam Down facility.
Testing heats up at Sandia’s Concentrated Solar Power Tower with high temperature falling particle receiver.
Masdar Institute Facility Able to Store Concentrated Solar Power at Temperatures as High as 400 Celsius
It successfully demonstrates low-cost storage technology for concentrated solar power (CSP) and is considered significant, as solar energy can now be stored in solid state at temperatures up to 400 Celsius at Masdar Inst
A plan to send energy from Tunisia to Britain is underscoring how much the concentrated solar power (CSP) industry now relies on storage for viability.
The project, to be undertaken at Masdar’s ‘Beam Down’ Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), will seek to study the feasibility and benefits of a novel TES system developed.
Concentrated solar power molten salt storage units at a level below $100 million in 2009 are anticipated to reach $13.6 billion by 2016.
Crescent Dunes Concentrated Solar Power will begin commercial operation before the end of March, and SolarReserve’s south-central Nevada solar project won’t stumble out of the gate the way power-tower forerunner Ivanpah
Abengoa is currently developing two concentrated solar power (CSP) plants, 110 MW each, with tower technology coupled with a thermal energy storage system based on molten salts.
The projects include thermal energy storage for concentrated solar power plants and improved forecasting for wind power and solar energy production.
SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Plant With Energy Storage Awarded Best Project
U.S.-developed technology at Crescent Dunes Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Project leads energy storage revolution for solar energy industry.
Abengoa is now evaluating a new design that could reduce proposed capacity but plans Palen Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) as a single tower including thermal energy storage.
